  • 452X string material

    Whats everyones opinion on this material?
    I have heard that it is not the most stable material out there?
    I for one cant stand peep rotation........Once upon a time I was using 8125 material from a custom string builder and everytime the temp/humidity changed there went the peep.
    I am told one HAS to use 452X material on the Elites.....
    Just how rock solid is the material?
    I live in Wisconsin......it can be zero degrees or 90 and humid....and I dont want to be always fighting my peep.
    So whats the word?

    My coach

    Coach Archery legend that knows his stuff. Good friend who is a top pro.

    Use 452X and Halo serving.

    Take it for what its worth. This is what he recommended years ago.

              452x is a perfect choice, from my experience if you shoot 450+ material it will slow your bow plus beat your bow to death! I personally shoot 50-100 shots a day 5-6 days a week and compete every Sunday using Stage 1 strings and they are 452x. And I also have the same weather conditions and have NO problems with 452x it works!!

                452X is the best material I have ever used, settles really fast, stays put, peep sits straight and pulls back straight.

                  Moderators.............go ahead and lock the thread.
                  I have thought it over and I didnt start the thread to pick on Elites policy with string choice. And when a certain person sees this thread I have a feeling it will be taken as so.
                  Although I am skeptical to the real reasons why my string choice isnt "right".....I will figure out how to get both my bows reset up with the correct string as soon as I can get the cash to buy two setups without the wife..........

                  And this 452X better be as good ....if not better than what Im using!
                  As I have been using it for quite awhile with nothing short of perfection!

                      452x is the best material I have used from BCY and I have used them all!

                      If the strings are built correctly they will not move! Take it to the bank!

                        I heard 452x originated due to the Texas climate conditions. A string material was needed that wouldnt stretch in the heat due to the hot temperatures thus 452x was born. I do not know if this is truth or not but do know the 452x will not stretch like the 8125. All of my custom strings are 452x and I have never had a problem with stretch or peep rotation.

                          see TEXAS is a reason for good things to originate from!






















                          but the heat does suck sometimes!

                            LOL. Having grown up bowhunting in Texas and now having completed my first full season in California, I can tell you there is no comparison heat wise. We start in July for deer and it was 105+ on many of those days. By the way, no problem with 452x here. It is the best overall so far.
